EuroBulkSystems - Privacy Policy


At EuroBulkSystems, we value your privacy and following the new rules set by the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have updated our privacy policy as of 24th May 2018.




This privacy policy tells you how and why we collect, store and use your personal data when you visit our website and interact with us via our EuroBulkSystems Website.


It tells you about your rights in relation to your personal data and how the law protects you. Also covered is how to contact us and the authorities in the event you have a complaint.


We ask that you read this privacy policy carefully so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. If you have any questions, or would like to exercise your privacy rights, please contact us directly.



Who we are


EuroBulkSystems (EBS) is an established magazine published 6 times a year in print and read by users of bulk processing systems throughout Europe. In this privacy policy references to “we”, “us” and “our”, are to EBS.


We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal data about you within the EBS Website. We are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal data for the purposes of those laws.


What data is collected by us


Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed which is classed as anonymous data.


During your visit to - and interaction with - our EBS Website, we can collect a variety of information. This personal data falls into these two categories:


  • Contact data includes addresses, email address and telephone numbers when provided through an enquiry form, or profile form
  • Technical data includes browser type and version, location, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access the EBS Website.
  • Aggregated data through a web analytical service called Google Analytics which provides statistical or demographic data. Aggregated data however is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website page or which days have more visitors.


How is your personal data collected?


We use different methods to collect data from and about you including:


Direct interactions - You may give us your identity, contact and any other data by filling in forms or by interacting with the EBS Website.

This includes personal data you provide when you update your user profile.


Automated interactions - As you interact with us, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your device, browsing actions and patterns. We may also collect Tracking Data when you use our EBS Website. We also receive data about you from our analytic provider though this does not identify you.


How and why we use your personal data


Under data protection law, to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, we can only use your personal data if we have a valid reason for doing so. For example, when you make an enquiry with us, you provide us with your contact information to respond to you.


What we use your personal data for our reasons


  • For Circulation purposes within the EBS Website, including weekly EBS News industry newsletters
  • To make contact with you through email or by telephone

  • Marketing communications that may be of interest (only where consent has been given)


Third party data collection


Links to external sources and third party sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook may exist from this website. They may request your personal data and we cannot take responsibility once you leave our site.



Who we share your personal data with


Outside of our company, we only share data with a third party supplier for the purpose of offsite data backup. All such backups are transmitted and stored in encrypted form (so not readable) in a location within the United Kingdom. We only allow our service providers to handle your personal data if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal data.


Whilst third party organisations related to IT and software maintenance may have temporary visibility of your information, these organisations do not have permission to use your data and will only be given access if required.


We will not sell or lease your personal information to any third parties.


If you wish to discuss this further, please contact us directly.



How long your personal data will be kept


We will keep your personal data for as long as is deemed necessary under the terms of your employment. We will do so for one of these reasons:
